The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE will celebrate its world première at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt this week. The two-seater hypercar brings the very latest and efficient, fully-fledged Formula 1 hybrid technology from the race track to the road almost par for par to represent the highlight of AMG's 50th anniversary. This high-performance hybrid is said to produce over 1,000 bhp and reach a top speed in excess of 220mph. The car combines outstanding race track performance and day-to-day suitable Formula 1 hybrid technology with exemplary efficiency. This truly is a world first.
The overall responsibility for the realisation of Project ONE lies with Mercedes-AMG. The complex development work was carried out in close cooperation with the Formula 1 experts at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth and with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team in Brackley. Together with the four-door AMG GT Concept, the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE provides another insight into the future performance-hybrid drive strategy of the sports car brand within Mercedes-Benz.
